would a change to the FOC in a similar fantasy help the game?

i think it would help cut down on min/maxing and make people concentrate more on their troops choices, but it would also make armies less competitive and that isnt good imo.

Possibly, but really min-maxing is always possible, its just stretching the army composition rules as far as you can. Its not like theres no min-maxing in fantasy. In fact a seriousy min maxed army in fantasy can be more powerful than the 40k equivilent in many ways. For example, the most simplistic Fantasy min max is the gunline, with 4 spellcasters in support. Some armies will just crumble to it. Also a mate of mine said when he went to the fantasy GT a few years ago he faced all min max armies in one form or another including a VC army with a few small units and a large 200 strong zombie unit with all the armies characters in it

I'm not sure aye as even though Fantasy has been toned down in regards to the impact of characters they still do play a very large part of the game where as for 40k characters arn't as a big a deal.

Armies wouldn't get a lot more varied either as the way I see it merging is this:

HQ - Hero's (Obviously)
Elites: Rare Choice
Troops: Troops (Duh)
Fast Attack: Troops
Heavy Support: Special

So na I don't think it would really do any good at all.

That VC army sounds just plain nasty - 200 strong Zombies :| - very fluffy though.
